Professional Summary:

I am excited to be with UBMD and Oishei Childrenā€˜s Hospital as I believe it affords me the opportunity to provide advanced and comprehensive care to my allergy patients. Although I have in past taken care of all types of clinical allergy patients , I now can focus on my passion for treating food allergy in the very young and continuing to work with families of young patients as they navigate the manifestations of allergy later in life.I am a clinician teacher, who in wanting to offer the best therapy for my patients has dabbled in clinical research. After doing all of my training in Southern Ontario,I became an American Citizen and have practiced in solo and group private practice in North Carolina,and more recently academic practices in Pennsylvania.
